Hi,

The samsung Rapid Mode only supports 1 disk for some reason.

I was wondering, would it be advisable to enable this for 1 of the 2 samsung 840 evo SSD's in the software (win7) Raid 1 array?

Or wouldn't it help to speed up things? Could it break the array?

Thanks!

Rapid mode is marketing hype for caching data in RAM before writing to the target.  If your system locks up, or blue screens, or you have power problems, you have guaranteed data loss.

As we all know the joys of BSODs, then my advise is not to use it.

Second voice here for not using it. With SSD drives in software RAID you get enough speed up. Plus the data loss possibility is too high with this Rapid Mode as noted above.

P.S. ask  yourself WHY they went out of their way to disable it in the first place.
